Does financial literacy belong in high schools? This question is surfacing more and more as Canadians dig themselves further into debt. Today's guest is Prakash Amarasooriya, a member of the Toronto Youth Cabinet who recently launched a petition urging the Ontario Ministry of Education to beef up their Grade 10 career studies course to include basic financial skills like budgeting. Within less than a month the petition was signed by nearly 900 supporters. What should be taught?  Will it have an impact? That’s today’s topic on Debt Free in 30.
